Right to object
You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for the specified purpose, to the extent the processing of data is not required for legal obligations and for the normal operations of the organization. ACHOUFFE shall no longer process personal data in this case, unless there are legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms (e.g. in the context of a labor agreement).
Certain categories of data are received and stored each time you have contact with us.
For example, like a lot of other websites, we use “cookies” and we receive certain types of data when your web browser opens ACHOUFFE (e.g. which pages are visited). This way, we can adapt our site better to your expectations. We don’t use this data for profiling of our visitors.
ACHOUFFE makes efforts to implement and maintain the appropriate measures to ensure that the safety, integrity and privacy of the personal data you provided is not abused. When processing your personal data, we take reasonable measures to protect this information from loss, abuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, modifications or deletion.
We use different technical and organizational measures to protect your personal data and to help prevent theft, abuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, modifications and deletion of your information. For example, we maintain the data provided by you on computer systems with limited access and in controlled environments. In addition, we require our external datacenter providers to take appropriate security measures. While transferring your data through internet, your data is protected by encryption. Your password is encrypted and can’t be made legible, which means it can’t be recovered or be disclosed by anybody, not even by ACHOUFFE.
When you place an order online and choose online payment by Visa, Master Card or Eurocard, you will be requested to provide the card number. The processing of this transaction is done by the certified payment provider Ingenico who guarantees a 100% safe transaction. ACHOUFFE will not see you card number or other data.

ACHOUFFE can divulge your personal data if it legally needs to or if ACHOUFFE, in good faith, judges that such divulgation is reasonably necessary to fulfill legal procedures or to react on potential claims.
